My friend just called and asked if I would loan him $300.00 to help him pay his rent. Those who know me, know that I’m always willing to help out friends and family. I told him to give me some time to think about it and I would call him back. Before I called him back, my buddy called and told me that my friend was lying and not to give him the money. He goes on to say that the real reason my friend wanted the $300.00 was to get his wife out of jail so she could be under the same roof as him for her birthday. I thought about it for a minute and decided to give him the $300.00 because we all need help at times and we all have desires. So, I called my friend and told him to come and get the money.

A couple of hours later, I get a call from the Monroe County jail. It was my friend crying, screaming and asking why I gave him counterfeit money. My response…so you and your girl could be under the same roof for her birthday!
